2019 Lamoresca ‘Bianco’ Vermentino
Vermentino is super rare in Sicily. It’s really not a thing at all. You usually go to Sardinia for that. So, it’s crazy that Filippo Rizzo not only chose it for his property but that he did such an outrageously good job at it.
The white only sees a couple of days on skins but it’s enough to give it real texture, colour and depth. There’s a real saltiness to the palate and it drinks very savoury.
Lamoresca’s wines are very much at the culty end of Italian wine. No matter how much we buy, we never seem to get enough.
